Obama Presidential Center

A view of the Obama Presidential Center campus, designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, experienced from the South. At the heart of the Center is a public plaza that extends into the landscape. The museum anchors the northern end of the plaza while the roofs of Library and Forum are covered with plantings to create new park land.

This movie is scary as f.

I don’t really know how to review a horror movie, because as you watch it, you’re not really enjoying being scared..well I’m not. I just like it for the social experience and the brownie points I get for being brave enough to watch the entire thing, lmao.

I will say that I thought the first one was better done. There were more details (like the smashed picture, etc). But this one is equally as painfully suspenseful. If you don’t like scary, don’t believe your friends who say ‘IT’S NOT THAT SCARY’, because it is. The suspense makes it scary; just as the first one’s did.

It’s hard to rate this seeing as it’s terrifyingly hard to watch and sleep after you’ve watched it.

6.5/10 - It could have had a few more interesting plot things. And it would have helped if we knew the character’s names through it.

Arqui, soy fan de tu blog. Quería preguntarte, ¿conoces buenos proyectos de auditorios pequeños? Realmente pequeños (menos de 100 asientos) Gracias :)

Aquí tienes unos ejemplos pero la mayoría de teatros con tan pocos espectadores son en salones con multiples usos y sillas en vez de asientos.

Hordes of rabid killers attack in the trailer for Cell, based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name. The film will be available on Ultra VOD on June 10, followed by a limited theatrical run on July 18 via Saban Films and Lionsgate.

King co-wrote the script with Adam Alleca (The Last House on the Left). Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) directs.

The movie re-teams 1408 stars John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. The cast also includes Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan),  Owen Teague (Bloodline), Clark Sarullo, Anthony Reynolds, Erin Elizabeth Burns, and Stacy Keach (Escape from L.A.).

I know the film industry has changed from what it once was, but it’s strange that a movie with this kind of star power - King, Cusack, Jackson, and zombies-like creatures - can’t get a wide theatrical release.

When a powerful signal is broadcast across mobile networks worldwide, cell phone users’ minds are instantly and dangerously re-programmed. Heading north through New England in search of his wife and son, Clay Riddell (Cusack) is joined by a group of survivors hoping to fend off the bloodthirsty and hyper-connected “phoners.”
